hello all, this is my first post here. i have been viewing for awhile but unable to post until now (problem with registering,fixed thanks).
anyway my wife and i are very into oriental decor/design and try to use it both in our home and garden. our garden is not a full blown japanese garden as many of you have but we tried to give it that feel. the main focal point is a small pond that spill over into a rock stream and flows into
a larger pond with 2 koi and water lilies. we included plants that seem appropriate such as juniper , azalae, rhododendron, japanese maple and some ornimental grasses. we wanted to include a bench but were unable to find anyone selling oriental style garden benches. being an amateur woodworker at the time( more advanced now) i decided to build my own.
the last pic is a cad drawing of a new bench i am working on it will be raffled off at a charity golf outing to benefit my nephews, there mother died of brest cancer a few years ago.
thanks for looking
